Applicant Verification Process
The verification process requires us to collect documents that confirm the FAFSA data regarding your family and your finances. This includes IRS tax transcripts for both you and your parents (if you are a dependent student) or your spouse (if you are married) unless you use the IRS data retrieval process when completing or updating your FAFSA. We’ll also need a Verification Worksheet (found on our website). If you happen to be one of those families selected for verification, you will usually be notified on your Student Aid Report (SAR) which can be viewed after you submit your FAFSA on the website www.fafsa.gov.
